Motorola Mobility Announces MOTOACTV™ in Chile— World’s First GPS Fitness Tracker and Smart MP3 Player, All in One
March 27, 2012
SANTIAGO, Chile – Mar. 27, 2012 – Scorch more calories, shatter personal records and train even harder with MOTOACTV™, the new fitness device from Motorola Mobility Chile Limitada. MOTOACTV is a lightweight, wearable fitness performance tracker and smart MP3 player, all in one. Sync MOTOACTV™ with your PC, so you can check out the music you perform best to or track your workouts over extended time periods, set goals and even create workout competitions with your friends via the MOTOACTV™ Web Portal. MOTOACTV™ features a touch-screen display so you can instantly launch a new workout or find that one song you’ve been dying to hear.
“We have integrated music to a high performance personal training monitor”, said Javier Guerra, general manager of accessories and consumers Motorola Mobility Latin America. “Work out smarter without using multiple devices or even wires, with the first multi-activity music and GPS fitness tracking device with the brains to push you beyond your limits.”
Stay on Top of Your Stats
We get it. You’re obsessed with your pace, number of calories burned, miles covered, personal records and fitness facts. MOTOACTV uses Motorola AccuSense™ technology and GPS to ensure measurement accuracy of your performance. Your time, distance, speed, heart rate and calories burned are all measured, so you can reach your fitness or weight loss goals faster than ever.
Then, immediately upload your workout to MOTOACTV.com through a Wi-Fi connection, to analyze the performance data tracked by the device and review useful, easy-to-understand charts, tools and programs that help you see your strengths and empower you to overcome challenges. You can also get workout tips and training plans from fitness experts at MOTOACTV.com and on your Android™-powered smartphone with our free mobile app available via Google Play™ and pre-installed on Motorola RAZR™ by Motorola.
Run. Ride. Jam.
Heart pumping, thighs burning and five laps to go. You need a serious soundtrack to get you through. MOTOACTV can rock up to 4,000 of your favorite songs while tracking your every move, even outside the gym. Ultra-portable, you choose the way you want to wear MOTOACTV: strap it on your wrist or arm, clip it to your shirt or mount it on your bike during an outdoor ride.
Your playlist is more than just workout songs: they’re songs that push you to perform at your peak. The smart music player learns what tracks motivate you most by measuring your performance against your music and then uses those songs to create your personal high-performance playlist.
On those days when your automatically generated high-performance playlist isn’t doing the trick, you can switch to FM radio for even more song variety. And if the music is really moving you, go that extra mile – MOTOACTV tracks your outdoor training via GPS.
